Happy Birthday Quotes & Song


To keep the heart unwrinkled, 
to be hopeful, kindly, cheerful, reverent 
that is to triumph over old age. 
Thomas B. Aldrich

Pleas'd look forward, 
pleas'd to look behind, 
And count each birthday with a grateful mind. 
Alexander Pope 

Live not one's life as though one had a thousand years, 
but live each day as the last. 
Marcus Aurelius

Life is not measured by the breaths we take, 
but by the moments that take our breath away

 And in the end, 
it's not the years in your life that count. 
It's the life in your years.  
Abraham Lincoln


Just remember, 
once you’re over the hill you begin to pick up speed.

Live as long as you may, 
the first twenty years are the longest half of your life.

When you turn thirty, 
a whole new thing happens: 
you see yourself acting like you parents.
Blair Sabol

A diplomat is a man 
who always remembers a woman’s birthday 
but never remembers her age.
Robert Frost 

 Sixteen candles make a lovely light 
But not as bright as your eyes tonight.

A prayer to bless your way
A wish to lighten your moments
A cheer to perfect your day

Birthday Bring Along A truly wonderful chance 
to leave aside every care and simply enjoy. 
Have An Extra - Special Birthday!

If you think you've lived life fully until now, 
then you know nothing. The best years of your life are yet to come. 

Your Birthday is the perfect opportunity 
to take a pause in life, 
look at the things around you, 
sense the feeling of being alive in the depths of your heart 
and promise yourself to do great things. 

The older the fiddler, the sweeter the tune.
- English Proverb -


To know how to grow old is the master work of wisdom, 
and one of the most difficult chapters in the great art of living.
Henri Frederic Amiel

Thank you so so much for all the lovely birthday wishes. 
Thank you for making my birthday so memorable.
My birthday would have not been the same without them.

ORIGINS of Happy Birthday 

The origins of "Happy Birthday To You" date back to the mid-nineteenth century, when two sisters, Patty and Mildred J. Hill, introduced the song "Good Morning to All" to Patty's kindergarten class in Kentucky. In 1893, they published the tune in their songbook Song Stories for the Kindergarten.

However, many believe that the Hill sisters most likely copied the tune and lyrical idea from other popular and substantially similar nineteenth-century songs that predated theirs, including Horace Waters' "Happy Greetings to All", "Good Night to You All" also from 1858, "A Happy New Year to All" from 1875, and "A Happy Greeting to All", published 1885.
